  4. The story of the Giro d’Italia, more demanding and unpredictable even than the Tour de France, is as dramatic and characterful as that of Italy itself. Heroism, suffering, feuds and betrayals, tradition under threat from modernity, all play out against a landscape of extremes. First contested in 1909 and then every year since, interrupted only by the First World War, the Giro began as an ordeal, with 400 km stages, night time starts and fixed geared bicycles on rough tracks. In the postwar period it was animated by the near-miraculous deeds of ‘Il Campionissimo’, Fausto Coppi, his feud with Gino Bartali and his scandalous lifestyle. In more recent times the story of the spectacularly gifted yet self-destructive Marco Pantani has been described as ‘perhaps the greatest cycling story ever told’. The Giro has given birth to many of the most potent myths in cycling; Giro d’Italia tells these stories and brings to life their iconic protagonists. In doing so, it also shows how much the legend of the Giro reveals of Italian society and its many contradictions.

  10. Having behind it almost 150 years of experience as one of Australia’s leading football clubs, North Melbourne has reason to be proud. North’s is a fine heritage,a source of justifiable pride to all who have contributed to its development since its inception in 1869. The club’s achievements, splendid as they are, are even more praiseworthy when it is appreciated how impoverished were some of the phases through which it has passed, and the relatively small supporter base it had to work with, competing against more affl uent clubs. The ‘Shinboners’ have had their share of premierships and other honours, yet it would be a mistake to think that the North tradition arose merely from its successes. It has been created more so by generation of after generation of North Melbourne players, officials and supporters – tested by poverty, challenged by defeat and resolutely dedicated to the persistent triumph of the Royal Blue and White.This is their story.

  12. Her name is Wendy Green, but she’s better known as Wendy in Wonderland, being the name Bart Cummings gave her after she asked him to win the Melbourne Cup with her horse Rogan Josh. While Cummings has no peer when it comes to winning Australia’s greatest horse race, he thought Green was dreaming when she told him her lightly-raced and unfashionably bred Perth horse had the potential to win the Cup. Too shy to approach Cummings personally, Green, a Darwin schoolteacher, arranged the deal through her trainer who in turn contacted Cummings’ Melbourne foreman, as a result of which Rogan Josh moved from Perth to Melbourne’s most famous stable. The fact that Cummings had seen Rogan Josh narrowly beaten in the 3200m Perth Cup in 1999 had a significant bearing on his decision to accept Rogan Josh into his stable. So began another colourful chapter in the history of the Melbourne Cup to give Cummings his 11th winner of the famous race. In between all the racetrack drama was the interminable optimism of Wendy Green, who travelled some 7,500km by car on a round trip between Darwin and Melbourne to see her Josh race to glory. And after the history-making win, Green returned to Darwin by road with extra luggage – the Melbourne Cup trophy and a crate of champagne stopping off on the way to share her joy with scores of larger-than-life characters in remote places of the Outback. There has never been a more colourful post-Cup celebration in the history of Australia’s greatest race and this book is a must read for people who like to hear of dreams coming true.

  18. For an invention that has only been around for 200 years, the simple bicycle has changed the world in many ways. It democratised travel for the first time, allowing ordinary people to travel at reasonable speed without need of a horse, to commute further afield to work and to enjoy the benefits of the countryside. It has challenged social conventions, granting women a new-found freedom, and it has played an important role in wartime, whether used by British paratroopers or in Vietnamese supply lines. Today, despite the prevalence of the car, the bicycle is as important as ever, with more cycles appear on city streets each year. Bikes come in all shapes and sizes and the history of cycling is on of innovation in design: from Macmillan’s first pedal-driven cycle to the eccentric Dursley Pedersen, and from the 1960s iconic Moulton to the free-styling BMX, the humble cycle continues to surprise and delight in equal measure. Illustrated in full colour with a wide range of photographs, The History of Cycling in Fifty bikes tells the story of the bicycle through 50 iconic machines, starting with the first primitive wooden two-wheelers through to carbon-fibre super bikes and the designs of the future, celebrating sporting achievements, technological advances and world records along with way.
